The artist about his practice:
"I love ordinary people. How does a good job turn out? My recipe: you need to salt and pepper it with different feelings. After all, even in the most hooligan ditty there is sadness and nostalgic feelings. When there is a lot of this, then the picture turned out ... We must be more responsible about to your creativity, Valentin! Take a thermometer, shove it under the armpit of an Englishman, Russian or Frenchman, it will show the temperature of the human body everywhere. So is the real picture, they show the temperature of human feelings, energy. Everyone understands this. "
“What does a person consist of? Sixty percent of the past, thirty of the present, ten of the future are what he dreams of. Everyone has their own alignment, but something like this. I have a direct relationship. My art is not laboratory-bred, but natural, environmentally friendly. They say my painting is light. Maybe. It is very important here which way you went. I did not know a hungry existence. And the girls did not leave me. Valentin Gubarev them I didn’t offend either. I don’t have such notches: I’m not beaten by women and hunger. I’m not a recluse and I like to peer into modern life. I’m not nostalgic with a tear for the past, but it entered my blood ... " .
